The Final Frontier

A commissioned piece for the guys at the Final Frontier comic store with the two guys running it imagined as costumed heroes ready to serve the world with their comic book goods! Originally planned to be a quick black and blue image I decided to surprise them with a full colour image. Having done this piece I feel like I ought to do more coloured work not just in vignette images but also with my comics. I think my next comic I will try out watercolours so that will be awesome.

Free comic book day

Today was a good day. I got asked by my local comic shop to showcase my work for the free comic book day, which I did and meet some really nice people that made the day all worthwhile. Also I initially had no plan of doing any commissions for people and just thought I would be drawing all day and just displaying my portfolio. So I sketched out Garrus from Mass Effect and suddenly people got interested and so I sold him for £2.50. Very modest pricing on my part, though I was very surprised someone wanted to buy a sketch off me. Afterwards I charged a fiver for a sketch and made quite a bit of money. So today was a really cool day to promote my work and have people look at it especially people I consider to be my audience who appreciated my work too, so it is a promising start.
Thank you Garrus! Always there when I can count on you!
